Carnegie Mellon University Africa - Carnegie Mellon University

Carnegie Mellon University Africa

Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), a world leader in engineering education and research, extended its global reach into Africa in 2012 when it opened the CMU Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Center of Excellence (CoE) in Kigali, Rwanda, in a partnership with the Government of Rwanda. The ICT CoE benefits from Rwanda’s bold ICT strategy and attractive environment for business and entrepreneurship.  As a unit of CMU’s College of Engineering, with full-time CMU faculty and staff, the ICT CoE extends CMU’s culture of innovation to Africa and prepares students to become technology thought leaders through two CMU master’s programs: the Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) and the Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering (MS ECE).  Based in one of the fastest growing economic regions of the world, the Center of Excellence faculty, students and graduates are ideally positioned to understand and take advantage of Africa’s unique opportunities.

Applications for the MSIT and the MSECE programs will be open September 1st and October 15th, respectively.
